We are slowly recuperating from a 3 week visit by our daughter Catharine and grandsons Archie (10) and Max (7). This was a lovely, if exhausting, experience! The last time we had visitors on the boat, apart from overnight sleepovers, was when Catharine crewed from the Cook Islands to Fiji in 2002!
|Forepeak before clearing|
|Ready for first snorkel|
The first night at anchor was in the relatively protected anchorage by Pigeon Island, allowing a beach trip.
|Sailing the Walker Bay|
The boys enjoyed their first snorkeling on coral reefs, sailed in the Walker Bay dinghy, chilled out on the floating adventure playground and even sat through an OCC lunch.
|Exploring the mangroves|
|At the fort on Pigeon Island|
|Beat that Donald Trump!|
|MY Ocean Paradise|
|In the water|
|Is it a fish? - No, just Max|
|Petit Piton from Tete de Paul|
|At the sulphur springs|
The anchorage between the Pitons was a bit of a disappointment - the resorts have taken over the bay and the snorkelling did not seem very special.
